2008 PGA Championship

In early August we went to the Wednesday practice round of the 2008 PGA championship in the Detroit area. A major golf tournament only comes to Michigan about once every 10 years.
Since it was a practice round you were allowed to bring cameras and there was some interaction with the golfers. It was also a relaxed enough atmosphere for us to dare to bring Evie.
It turns out that Evie was easy to handle. She slept all day...and then slept the entire ride home...and then slept all night. I don't know how that happened and it hasn't happened since, but she basically slept for 24 hours straight. I was pretty tired that day, too so I caught a snooze with her.
We saw plenty of famous golfers but several of the best didn't practice on Wednesday or went out early to avoid the crowds. My favorite Tiger was injured. We did see Fred Couples (pictured below), Vijay, Davis Love III, the Big Easy, Zach Johnson, Adam Scott, Jim Furyk, and Chris DiMarco.
